Crude fish oil is sourced from Peruvian fisheries and exported to different industries throughout the world for animal and human consumption. Canada, Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom are among the primary destinations for our crude fish oil exports.
Our crude fish oil is shipped in bulk or in containers, depending on the customer’s needs, through our port terminal in Chimbote.
In 2009, COLPEX established its fish oil refining and molecular distillation facility in Supe, located on the Peruvian coast 200 kilometers north of Lima.
Our facility produces semi-refined, fully refined and concentrated fish oils with a high level of Omega-3 fatty acids for direct human consumption and in line with the highest quality and safety international standards.
We adjust the quality specifications of each product to the particular needs of each customer by offering tailor-made solutions aligned with the product’s end use.
Our refining facility also produces semi-refined and refined fish oils for the animal feed industry, primarily for pet food.
COLPEX is one of the leading producers and exporters of refined fish oils in Peru.
COLPEX offers different logistic services to the local fishing industry through its port terminal in Chimbote:
Ground Transport Services
We provide ground transport services along the Peruvian coast with our fleet of six tank trucks that are exclusive used for crude fish oil. All our vehicles are equipped and monitored with a GPS system to guarantee the cargo’s traceability and safety
Our port terminal has a 16,000MT storage capacity, distributed between nine tanks with individual capacities ranging from 1,500MT to 2,500MT. COLPEX facilities are exclusively used for fish oils.
Bulk Shipment Service
Our port terminal also has a privately-operated multi-buoy berth and a 2,000-meter-long underwater pipeline, located in the Chimbote bay, for the bulk loading and unloading of crude fish oil.
COLPEX has a new plant in Chimbote, designed and built with the latest technology, for the production of protein concentrates for direct human consumption.
This facility’s main products are:
- FPI (Fish Protein Isolate), with minimum protein levels of 80%.
- FPC (Fish Protein Concentrate), with minimum protein levels of 70%.
In terms of digestibility and purity, protein concentrates are among the best proteins in the world. Available for use in different applications in the food industry, these concentrates improve the nutritional value and enrich the protein content of different products.
Both products are processed from the Peruvian anchovy, which is a plentiful species in the Southern Pacific Ocean and underutilized for human nutrition.
PRODUCTS ENRICHED WITH OMEGA 3
Our company has also developed several finished product alternatives with high EPA and DHA content, designed to be an efficient, safe and pleasant way to consume marine-sourced essential fatty acids.
COLPEX offers different presentations for children and adults that have excellent acceptance levels in each target group. These new products have been developed to provide the ocean’s essential nutrients to the final customer in a manner that is enjoyable and easy.
